Dear CM Punk/ WWE
Please stop commercializing on the straight edge. It isn’t cool when metalcore kids do it with dumb t-shirt “companies” so why would you be any better? You’re taking a progressive idea from pretty nifty dude and his band and caricaturizing it so that you can add to your roster of weakly themed (read: gimmicked) characters. You’re no better than any other mass corporation bastardizing punk to make a dollar and your character should be viewed as being just as appalling as the “straight edge” varsity jackets being sold by H&M and Next or some punx as fux Hot Topic bullshit.
Also, I’m tired of having people look at my records and claim that a gorilla drawn in 1987 is “ripping of CM Punk” by have X’d hands.
The straight edge > macho soap operas.
-Valeri XVX, world straight edge chancellor/ king of hardcore.
I knew guys like this in high school… they all drink now.
So maybe worry about this stuff less and the stress of being concerned about what other people do and think wont drive you into a beer fueled meltdown in the form of some lame college party when yer 20 (if you’re much older than that I do apologize, but I can’t imagine anyone older than 22 being straightedge and at the same time giving a flying fuck about CM Punk also being straightedge)
Also, CM Punk is “actually straight edge,” so while this rant may hold weight against WWE, Punk is just, like, “being himself,” or whatever.
Gonna go listen to Embrace Today because I love poseur metalcore straightedge.
